Coming into his own, controlling the flow of the game whenever he steps onto the ice. This is the way he impacted games before he got to the NHL.

Could not be happier with the way he has played for most of this season.
I always remember you talking about Stepan and how he should be using his playmaking abilities rather than just shooting for the sake of it. He is definitely rounding off into complete player and something i noticed the other night against Carolina was when he entered the zone he played a perfect little saucer pass i think it was to Nash whereas before he would have just looked to get a shot off.

My memory sucks so i can't remember if it was his rookie year or last year that you had said he needs to use his playmaking abilities that he was known for but it was something that made me watch him closer as i don't really get to see our players/prospects unless they are on the Rangers.
